Our first social race ended yesterday. It’s nice to see what lies behind the organization of a race, we had always seen it from another point of view. The commitment was high and we did everything to make everything fit perfectly. It was not easy and we know that something could be improved. Put a hand on your heart … as jugglers we have discovered the art of skillfully manipulating one or more situations. With a precarious balance we have traced more than 40 blocks and managed the organization of the race and its development. The competition started at 12:00 with the registration filling out boring but (necessary for us) paperwork. We did not expect so many people and we regret having you waiting in line in the office.
The qualifications start with an exceptional DJ, the music starts to heat up and the rhythm is fast. 40 blocks divided by difficulty and the diversity of problems traced by Jihad and Alexander (aided by Jack and Andrew) offer everyone the opportunity to have fun. This chaotic and frenetic panorama lasts 6 hours, at 18:00 all the athletes are forced to hand over the card where they have transcribed, by self-certification, the blocks they have made.
In the secretariat, the whole team is assembled to draw up the ranking. the keys beat noisily on the keyboard and our Excel sheet begins to come to life. Once the last cell has been completed, we have the ranking for access to the semi-finals.
The categories are:
under 16 female
under 16 men
The semi-finalists are ready and the blocks that will open the doors to the second part of the race are mounted.
The block of the male and female semifinal is studied on the fiberglass structure in front of the windows and the show is immediately opened by a sequence of athletic and physical movements. The first round seems to be of patrolling for all the athletes intent on finding the most suitable method to reach the Top.
The athletes commit their subsequent attempts to grab the Top which gives them the opportunity to access the final.
Skimmed the pink athletes forward to the central part of the gym. Here also the final of the unders begins. With a high-pitched background music and a growing typhoon by the large audience motivated by our exceptional speaker, Andrea, start all categories of rotation for the final final sprint. The hands are worn out, the arms are tired and the forearms hardened by the day full of fatigue but these guys do not seem to mind too much. Only towards the end do you notice them looking at their fingertips as if to check how much skin is now lisa.
It was a good fight and the winners deserved to get on the podium (imaginary) for the delivery of the prizes offered by our sponsors.
The contribution of the sponsors was an immense gift, they ensured that the athletes’ efforts were repaid. They participated enthusiastically and it is an honor for us to mention them.
